Electronic filing into 11 Oregon circuit courts will be temporarily unavailable on Monday, October 27, beginning after 5:00 p.m., when the Oregon Judicial Department will be upgrading the File & Serve system software. eFiling services are expected to resume no later than 8:00 a.m. on Tuesday, October 28. The provisions of UTCR 21.080(6) (relation back to date of attempted eFiling) apply during this period. Please refer to CJO 14-049
For attorneys attempting to use File & Serve through the OJD web page, the “Start Now” button will be disabled. Attorneys attempting to use File & Serve through the Tyler Technologies web page will see a temporary page advising them that the File & Serve system is down for maintenance.
When File & Serve is restored, OJD expects that attorneys will be able to eFile subsequent documents into restricted case types, which was suspended on October 1, 2014. The restricted case types generally include adoption, juvenile dependency and delinquency, civil commitment, and punitive contempt and protective orders related to the federal Violence Against Women Act. Please note that UTCR 21.070(3) continues to require that certain documents be filed conventionally.
File & Serve will continue to mask names and other information about parties and participants in searches involving those restricted case types.
